about executive orders, rush limbaugh made a great point. lessen, it's entirely possible that the obama administration will do something for gun control by executive order and it's entirely the mainstream media will say that's terrific, what we need. limbaugh says imagine if it's bush 43 doing it on abortion and what would the reaction then be? it would be completely different. it's congressional power and blah blah blah. >> jon: this is one of the weeks we need more time for a topic like this. next on news watch, mr. obama's cabinet pick is getting interesting media attention. >> president obama out to rebuild his cabinet. his choices a bit controversial. has the press already passed on his picks or is there a battle ahead? answer is next on news watch. your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and they have six grams of sugars. with fifteen grams of p

and we need to persuade president obama [inaudible] it is proving very difficult. the thing is you don't let someone have more than two terms as president. by the end of two terms, people have had enough already. he has an eye on his legacy, obama does. and how he is viewed by history. these guys and these people are in important positions. bush and cheney and rumsfeld want them to take as a robust approach as necessary. and people like katherine bigelow went to rewrite the rules. the president obama knows he will be judged for that. and i don't think fundamentally he wants to be known in that way. he didn't want to do it because it was politically inconvenient. so there are people who know that this is more of a legacy and this is an administration that has dealt with what has been created. so whatever ways we can, we need to say that this is a difficult issue. but it's not something that we can't all deal with. in whatever way we are doing this, conversations with friends and family, those of us keep saying that this is not a position that the united states can maintain that 11 years

in that last year of being there after the change in mission. and this is what ended it. president obama saying today it will still be a dangerous environment. we will still need to do force protection, but the mission will change this is how we start to leave and it will happen as of this spring which is a surprise. faster than anybody said it would happen. now, the justification for speeding up the way out, i have to admit, is a little holey. holey with an "e," not ah. this is because of the progress that's been made in terms of after began security forces, capacity to take the lead. i don't really know anything about the strength of afghan security forces and neither do you, unless you are just back from the war, which case, welcome home. but the pentagon's report to congress on that subject which reportedly was ready before the election this year, but did not get released until after the election for some reason, the official u.s. pentagon report on the readiness of afghan security forces, far from afghan security forces ready to take the lead, out of 23 afghan army brigades, only one of th

to mint a trillion dollars coin. they feel they need to go through congress to get the debt increased. there's question how it will take effect. president obama said he is not going negotiate with congress. so it raises the question, if he is not going negotiate congress, how are they going to get it done? congress is digging in and house republicans saying they are not going to aagree to an increase in the debt limit unless it's equalled by dollar for dollar spending cuts and depositions saying they are not signing off on that, they believe it will take a huge bite out of sbeel s entitlements and that is all coming as the noungsment of a appointment of a new head of treasury, secretary of the treasury, former chief of staff, jack lew, some say he is a big spend democrat, they feel they cannot work with him. white house said he is exactly in line with what the president wants to do. which is to make sure that any deal includes spending cuts and new revenues and taxes. so we are heading toward yet another fiscal cliff, this one over the debt ceiling and really no end in sight as to ho

and i think that is a really unfair way of going about doing things. >> need to know airs tonight on most cbs stations. >> woodruff: again, the major developments of the day: president obama and afghan president karzai announced u.s. troops in afghanistan will shift away from a combat role this spring a little earlier than scheduled. the federal aviation administration launched a comprehensive review of problems with boeing's 787 dreamliner. and the centers for disease control confirmed that the flu has reached epidemic proportions across the u.s. if you called in sick with the flu this week, you are not alone. hari sreenivasan tells us about one way to track this year's nasty strain. >> sreenivasan: did you know that counting the number of times people search for "flu" on the internet is an effective indicator of the spread of infection? find a graph of how much your state has been googling the flu. plus, we want you to tell us what you think of our science coverage in a new poll. find both at "lunch in the lab." jeff brown talks to "washington post" film critic ann hornaday abou
than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> today, a big step toward putting an end to this eight-year mess that was george w bush's foreign policy. at the white house, president obama met with afghanistan's president and he made a big announcement. we achieved our central goal, or have come very close to achieving our central goal, which is to decapacity al-qaida to make sure that they can't attack us again. by the end of next year, 2014, the transition will be complete. afghans will have full responsibility for their security. and this war will come to a responsible end. >> yes, a reduced role for u.s. troops will start this spring. after more than 4,000 days of combat, it is close to being over. no more of the arrogant attack first neocon fantasy. it's why the nomination of chuck hagel matters. the president is taking the bush doctrine and kicking it out the door. a historic stamp. joining me now is former congressman patrick murphy, democrat from pennsylvania. he's the first iraq war veteran elected to congress. and nia malika henderson, first, let
